Finally looking like something!

That's all I can say, it's been a long year, almost ;) BUT first, I wanted to show those of you who only get 6 or so inches of snow a year..what happens when it lingers around for a while! (AND you know who you are!) ;)



OKAY on to the work! Hubby was busy trying to get some more sheet rock hung..the old beams were a trial, as they originally had plaster on them, and the unevenness of the hand made 2 x 4 beams didn't matter..but when applying sheet rock, it certainly does! Hubby had to build out some of the beams as he went to make it more even.



I have to admit though, I looked at bare beams for so long, it really looks strange to me to see them covered!


This room is pretty much complete..it needs the closet doors put in, as you can see below, that empty area is where the 4 foot wide bi-fold doors will be for the closet. I wanted to be able to have total availability for what's hidden in the closet..my children aren't much for dragging everything out to get to the bottom of things, so they won't have to now.


Oh yeah, you can probably see what appears to be two outlets real close to one another..but it isn't really.. one is an outlet, the other is for cable/phone lines. We placed the cable lines on both sides of the room, not knowing what the set up of each room would be, this way there wouldn't be lines running all around the room.

He started on the next room...which I don't have a photo of posted here..it isn't much to see...but I am pleased with the progress so far..

Hubby had some last minute plumbing to install behind the walls for the laundry room, and the vent pipes for the downstairs bathroom..he wants to have them in before he closes up the walls..so he's trying to do it as he goes..might have been better to just do all the piping first, but he wanted to feel like he accomplished something for a change..and having all that sheet rock hanging around, just seems to get in his way!


I'll have more photos next week!

Rooms! I see rooms.
I'd still swap your snow for the gale force winds and torrential rain we had.
